I’ve been performing as a singer/songwriter for almost ten years (but I’m still only 30) – I’m originally from Clemson, SC but I’ve been living and working in Nashville, TN for the last five. I’m not just a guy that fronts a band. I’m busy in the studio, both recording my own material, and producing other artists. I’m also an active sideman, playing keyboards, guitar and singing with many local performers and writers, and national acts Kellie Pickler, Andy Griggs, Brian McComas, Daniel Lee Martin, and Rebecca Lynn Howard. I’m also a songwriter – actively participating in Nashville’s writing community (NSAI and ASCAP member, and founder of 5/11/77 Publishing) and releasing 3 CDs with of my own material since 2000, and co-writing with some of Nashville’s top published songwriters. I’ve averaged playing 200 shows/year for the last 3 years throughout the USA, including several international tours, and including live and taped radio shows, and television performances (see below)

I’m also accessible, choosing to book and manage myself. I believe in building relationships through direct interaction, strong ethics, and hard work (and a LOT of phone calls).
